The R129 model was built between 1989 and 2001. The base model is the 190 hp 3.0 L inline 6 300SL with 12 valves. The 228 hp 3.0 L inline 6 with 24 valves is known as the 300SL 24 . But it was the 322 hp 500SL , with a 5.0 L V8 engine, which made the most headlines. The specification was high, with electric windows, mirrors, seats and roof. The R129 model was the first convertible/roadster to offer the automatic roll bar deployment in event of rollover. The motorist can also manually raise and lower the roll bar should he choose to. This facilitates the clean look of R129 without compromising the occupant’s safety.
This example is described as a very original car, with over £4,000 spent on it in the last year. The soft top windows are brand new, and it has just been serviced less than 500 miles ago. Wind deflector, tool kit, original book pack and 2 keys present.
